"10 stars for HOURGLASS and 10 more for Josh!
I would like to thank Josh Travis at Hourglass profusely for finding me not just a job, but THE JOB! – the ideal teaching position in an amazing school that will allow me vast growth and development as a teacher.
I was already registered with two other recommended agencies when Josh contacted me out of the blue from Hourglass after seeing my CV online. His call was a godsend.
I had become disillusioned with the whole process of finding a psychology teaching position as an NQT. Interacting with the other agencies was a culmination of a lack of communication and follow-up calls regarding possible job roles. From the onset, I realised Josh was different. He portrayed as far more professional, attentive, and engaging.
There was a vast difference in the level of communication and support I received from Josh. He consistently communicated – maintaining contact and support throughout; and was readily available at every call – giving his time and full attention. Interestingly, I felt Josh not only knew what role I wanted but understood my personality and recognised the attributes and skills I would bring to that role; and that he would effectively communicate this to potential employers.
I trusted Josh’s competence and I was confident that he would secure me a teaching position. Indeed, he did. Accordingly, Josh was prompt in confirming my subsequent interview and providing the necessary information I needed to prepare. Most importantly, he checked in on how my preparation was progressing and called the day before to wish me good luck.
Once again, thank you, Josh! and I thank you Hourglass! I would most definitely recommend Hourglass Education to any teacher - experienced or newly qualified."
